(Pocket-lint) – Smart security cameras and video doorbells are wonderful for providing peace of mind when you’re away from home.

Google’s Nest range includes some of our best picks on the market, but one key feature has been curiously missing for some time.

Until now, it wasn’t possible to stream your Nest cameras and doorbells to Chromecast with Google TV.

This was a pretty shocking oversight, in an otherwise pretty robust ecosystem, but we’re glad to see it’s finally fixed.

Google said the feature is rolling out and “all Nest cameras and doorbells will be supported.”

If you want to try it, here’s how it works:

Option 1

  1. Grab your Chromecast voice remote
  2. Press the Google Assistant button
  3. Ask the assistant to show you the camera of your choice. For example, “Show me the back garden camera”.
  4. Your camera feed should start streaming to your TV.

Second Option

  1. Activate Google Assistant on another device, like a Nest speaker or Android phone.
  2. Ask Google to show you the camera on the TV. For example: “Hey Google, show me the backyard camera on my TV”.
  3. Your camera feed should start streaming to your TV.

So far, Google has only mentioned Chromecast support with Google TV, but we can assume that support will expand to other Android TV and Google TV devices in the future. We will keep an eye on the development of the situation.
